We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in April and May. This offer is open to children in school years Junior Infants and below. Places are limited, so give us a call to find out more.
The study centre, which was established in 2008, currently supports children who attend schools within the local area. Some students also travel to class from a much wider geographical area as the centre offers the opportunity for students to attend a Saturday class.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Students are invited to attend two classes per week. Whilst many students only attend once per week, they have the option to attend more often during times when extra help is required.
An initial assessment will show their current skill set, and together with the parents and student, a plan is made which will allow the student to build on their skills, further their knowledge and excel both in and beyond the classroom.
Alongside the Instructor, a team of dedicated assistants support the students’ development in class. They are all highly qualified and trained in the Kumon programme; three of them have studied the programme themselves, seen the benefits and stayed on to help other students achieve the same success.
Kumon’s long-term focus provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.
The Blakenhall, Wolverhampton Study Centre has grown from month to month.
I was attracted to the idea of becoming an Instructor after visiting a local Kumon study centre. I was overwhelmed by the way students were enjoying their work and working independently, most of which were ahead of their school level.
During my daughter’s time at Kumon, I witnessed her self-belief improve dramatically as she was a shy girl with little confidence. Her confidence grew to such an extent that she played the lead role in her school play for which she received glowing praises from other parents.
Since opening, I have witnessed countless students, younger and older, achieve beyond their own boundaries to study ahead of their school grade level. It is rewarding to see so many students with low confidence become capable individuals with the confidence to achieve.
I welcome any visit to the centre by appointment to allow you to experience what your child can expect at the centre and also give you a chance to speak to some parents on their views. It is a very pleasing thought to have had so many students from recommendation as this shows that our parents are happy with the level of service they are receiving.

Kumon offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
